May 22, 2010
The tragic crash occurred when the large plane overshot the runway while coming in for a landing, crashing into it and bursting into flames, ejecting a few passengers but killing most of the others on board.
A few others were able to scramble out of the wreckage.
It isn’t clear what went wrong, but an equipment failure is a clear possibility.
“As head of the civil aviation family I feel very saddened and a great sense of anguish,” Aviation Minister Praful Patel said in an official statement to the press.
“I also feel personally morally responsible that such a sad and tragic incident has taken place.”
